New! 2009 Great Plants Perennial of the Year and the Perennial Plant Association of the Year for 2011! This U.S. native offers a long season of interest, with its blue spring into early summer flowers, attractive feathery leaves, and golden yellow autumn color. At almost 3 feet tall, it adds interest if planted in and amongst ornamental grasses and small shrubs. Not the most stunning plant its first year, but with patience you will be rewarded! This is a great addition to the cottage or meadow garden. This easy keeper prefers well-drained soils and is deer resistant!
